What you can do is by a 20gal long or high tank, Next what you can do is by glass that is cut to the wideth of the tank and the hieght(2 pieces) and then you would get aquaruim sealent and attached the glass panels to make sections in the tank. The next thing you want to buy is an overflow box. This is used to get the water to the main tank to the sump. this way the protien skimmer will sit in the first section that the water from the tank is going into. The 2nd section you can put some sand and algea as in calerapa algea in this section this would be the refugium, then inturn the water will flow into the 3rd section which the water should be crystal clear. You would how some kind of pump with a 700gal per hour flow rate or more to transfer the water back to the main tank. I did the same thing for my 120gal and the whole setup cost around $200. Myself or Caferacermike can walk you though the steps do do it yourself if you would like.
